May skies

Leave it to the skyscapes to get me motivated to post again. We’ve had some great early storm clouds this year, bringing agua (es la vida!) del cielo, crepuscular rays, and my favorite kind of light, stormlight.

We’ve had an unusually cool and moist Spring here; it feels almost like Autumn some days — yesterday 20/5 and today with highs in the 60s, a good 15-20 dF below normal. It’s great! If the Earth wants to make New Mexico more like Morelos, I shan’t complain, haha…

…with the possible exception of the active volcanoes.

Golden Cloud
Another day, another sweeping front.
This one brought stormlit clouds and rain

The front generated rainbows as it swept by 🙂
Cumulonimbus massif
This cloud massif made a great show, but didn’t do anything here — it appears to have gotten Tso’odzil and the Pueblos West, though…
